Easy, Safe & Reliable Transportation:

Travel safely & learn about the community in the process

No need to stress about renting a vehicle or driving on unknown roads with “unique” driving conditions. Our drivers have flawless safety records, speak fluent English, and, most importantly, are awesome people who can show you a new side to their community. All of their vehicles are inspected and are in tip-top shape. Your driver will welcome you at the airport, drive you to your accommodation, provide your family two local rides /day (to and from your volunteer site or activities for example) and drop you off at the end of your stay.

Surf & Kitesurf Setup:

High quality lessons and rentals, perfect for families

We work with local shops that have 5 star ratings in safety and gear quality, so you can book assured that your family will have a blast learning the ways of the wind and waves, stress free. Also, if you already shred, you can count on this gear to suit your needs: no beater gear.

Your package here includes three half days of gear rentals or lessons (surf, kitesurf, SUP or windsurf) transport to and from the lesson included (see section on transport below).

Family Volunteering:

An opportunity to learn and contribute

Your package includes up to three half-day volunteer activities with one of our local non-profit partners. Most of our partner organizations work in general youth and family support, and are similar to organizations like the Boys and Girls club, which you might be familiar with from the U.S. These organizations are providing safe spaces for local youth to participate in after-school programs such as homework help, English language learning, sports and healthy living. Likely projects for your family include English language tutoring, painting and general maintenance of the educational facilities or whatever the immediate priority of our partner organization.
